I have a new job! And I'll be moving to Olympia, WA for it.

Now, I'm a NW boy, but the uke bug hit me just recently while I was here in Chicago, so I'm asking for suggestions along the lines of teachers, stores, clubs, etc.

Tell me what ya know!

Hope you can make it to Monday Ukulele Ohana in Lakewood, WA--Maybe 25 minutes away. Unfortunately, Olympia Ukulele Players Asso. (OLUPA) just disbanded, but if I hear anything new I'll let you know. Your longneck can visit it's birthplace!
p.s I never skip flossing.;)

My friends Kate Power and Steve Einhorn live in Olympia, they produced the Ukalaliens book and CD for Hal Leonard and have done a Homespun Tapes series on uke. Nice folks. Tell them I sent you!

You will also need to find a stable for your pygmy pony.
